Bike porn: Orange 322 downhill bike

We normally reserve the ‘bike porn‘ tag for bikes that have been pimped to within an inch of their life. So what’s so special about this Orange 322? Well, for starters it’s got a custom neon yellow paintjob that’s so bright it could be used to land planes in fog – these photos really don’t do it justice!

On top of that, Orange‘s ‘standard’ spec is actually a wishlist mix of ‘best of British’ kit – Hope brakes, hubs and headset, Renthal bar and stem – plus some choice picks from overseas. In fact, we reckon there’s not a single thing you’d need to change out of the box. Turn the page for loads more pics.
